The Remedy is the Experience


Want to know the remedy for seeing too many gorgeous, ornate structures in Vienna? Visit the Hundertwassen Museum and home of modern artist Freidensreich Hundertwassen. Quirky, funky, abstract, and completely sincere, I loved wandering in his little world for a while. Even the floors aren't straight, but hilly wandering paths of brick. So cool.

His art and design made me think of someone else I know. One time my Max was looking out over the New York City skyline and sighed. "Why do all the lines have to be straight?" he wondered.

In the museum there is a quote by the artist: "The straight line is godless."

Seems like the hard questions are always answered in art.

(P.S. In personal news, I lost a big part of my job this week. Keep your fingers crossed for me in my new job search! Thank ya kindly.)

I had never thought of straight lines as being godless, but he might have something there.

I am praying for you.

I'm pretty sure Max is going to do great things with that creative mind of his. And I think I need to add this museum to my list of places to visit.

Christy said...

Really cool building.
I'll be thinking of you.

Those idiots. Who fires my sister? Dumb people, that's who. Really really dumb people.

Now you can finish your freaking amazing books and shove it down Mrs. Fields throat, with some icing on it for good measure.

What an adventure you had!

What?! Mrs. Fields? We need to talk!

Suzie said...

my first thought was NO!
but then I thought YES!
she can get that book finished.
but I know it's not that simple.
prayers & hugs for you, my dear friend.
May you find something even better.

(to cheer you up-my word verification was butinski)

Fools. They are complete fools. Can't wait to see what happens next for you! I'm thinking of you!!

Ann said...

Fingers crossed, doll. Fingers crossed.

And calling architecture "completely sincere" is so accurate, so genius.

This just makes taking the better offer that is just around the corner easier. No worries. I believe in you. And in Max.

If there's one person I know who will come out for the the better in this situation, it is my sister.

Kelly Sperber said...

Yikes! But I must say, some of the best things in my life have come out of me thinking everything is going wrong.

Ali said...

Ack, so sorry to hear your job news. It's a kicker, but I hope you'll look back on it to see that it lead on to greater things.

Fingers crossed. Any employers would be lucky to have you. Maybe I will start my own company just to hire you.

We missed you bloggin'. Glad to see you had a grand trip.
